    Paramount Recalls Saving Private Ryan Blu-ray Discs

    Were you excited last week to finally get Saving Private Ryan on Blu-ray? Were you less excited to see that the disc seemed to be exhibiting an audio sync problem, causing the sound of shells and explosions to be heard before they actually hit? Well, the problem wasnt your player. Its the disc, and Paramount is now recalling the entire first-run batch.

    This supposedly affects every disc, so if you have Saving Private Ryan on Blu-ray right now, youve got a bad one. The good news is that Paramount and Technicolor are acting quickly to fix the problem. New discs will be on shelves next week, Tuesday, May 18. They will have a yellow UPC sticker on the back, denoting their status as corrected discs.

    Why would you want to if you can exchange the disc?

    I'm sure an exchange can wait until a next visit to the shop. Way too much hassle manually resyncing something.

    You think. I know plenty of people who eg live in Bedlington and would only travel to Newcastle once in a while to visit shopping centres / like Eldon Square or even further like the Metro Centre as a treat etc it will be their closest HMV. Petrol and public transport is not cheap. Comeon how hard is it to adjust a setting from say 0 to 48ms after paramount tell you how far infront the audio is to the visuals.

    Besisde the waste of energy carbon footprint etc

    Anyways whatever :lol it's not important uns*

    Depends if the audio is out of sync consistently throughout. Regardless I would still take it back or send it back if I lived so far away from the store I bought it from.

    This is a vital point, I want to develop an Alfonse/Casparwhite scale argument over this :thumbsup:

    You would have thought they would actually check the master before commiting to making a large batch. Its not like its the first disc they have ever produced.
